8:44 am
up if you need to, or if it falls apart and just do it in the crock pot and break it up, put them in and let them cook until the dumplings are finished and you'll find the inside of the dumplings will be bread-like and not doughy. >> kyle: that is good! >> and it is really nice and thick. >> kyle: it is. this is comfort food! i mean this is -- you'll eat this and go into a carb coma evening. it's delicious. >> nice lean protein and not a lot here with the cream of chicken and all you have is the bread. >> set it and forget it meal you're so famous for here on "good day, virginia". we'll get this recipe up online as soon as we can. amy carter, good to have you on gave.
